It is common for women to experience sagging skin or a lack of skin laxity with age and following childbirth. Vaginal rejuvenation (female intimate wellness) refers to laser treatments performed to tighten the skin in the vaginal area to improve its appearance and help regain a more fulfilling sexual experience.
Vaginal rejuvenation corrects and improves the appearance and function of the vagina in addition to offering the following benefits:
Vaginal rejuvenation is performed using the Fractional CO2 laser to tighten the skin by boosting collagen production. This advanced laser treatment is FDA approved for the ablation and coagulation of soft vaginal tissue. When used, it increases the elasticity of the skin around the vaginal wall as well as stimulates vaginal moisture and enhances sexual satisfaction. This also improves incontinence, which is a common issue with women over 40 or after childbirth.
The minimally and non-invasive laser treatments take less than 30 minutes to perform. Most patients require one to three treatments about every four weeks followed by maintenance treatments ever six to 12 months.
The results from vaginal rejuvenation are immediate and improve over time. Most results last several months to a year and require follow-up treatments to maintain the enhanced appearance and function of the vaginal area. It is recommended you avoid sexual intercourse for the first 48 hours following treatments.
If you feel your vaginal area is loose or stretched from childbirth or a lack of skin elasticity due to age and menopause, you may be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation with laser resurfacing.
